Cook for Good Community Forum > Pesto recipes - oil quantity

Hi all, I'm just plannig on making the Summer Southern Pesto recipe, but having looked at the Parsley Pesto recipe alo, I wanted to check the oil quantity first. ThevSouthern pesto uses 2 cups, whilst the Parsley Pesto only uses 1 cup - is that correct? Many thanks!

Dawkins, good spot ... and yes, those are the proportions I use. The basil pesto also uses twice as much greenery: 4 cups basil leaves compared to 2 cups parsley. I make bigger batches of basil pesto because I love to freeze some. Parsley pesto is good, but just not as compelling.
